is above and beyond local cal green and san francisco requirements and how do we do that through the demands like balanced parking and the mass transit and bike parking green roofs and zero waste procurement and energy cac and other alternative sources like solar on site generation all right. so with those points out of the way let's talk about the design something i feel passionate about and hope to bring that to light today the fabric of mission bay if you know it is very wonderful tall buildings and that's part of the planning the design for development it yields texture let's say to the urban fabric
4:03 pm
we intentionally and with the help and support of katherine's group at ocii looked to do something nor organic i want to talk about that and you can certainly ask questions we had 3 large building elements the arena and the two office building we wanted to balance the location and the adjacency so it if create negative space around this instead of setting the site up we actually set it up over and over gangly allowing it to flow for having seenly would the arena located also let's say slightly to the billboard site that freed up the site on third street this was really key to us we looked at
4:04 pm
the site in a number of different ways we located the arena we balanced the public space around it what we did was establish a series of pathways that are more organic and flowing and interesting to use than the lines of the overall fabric of mission bay so that leads us to the current matter of the plan quickly the ocii you see on our screen all right. very good so the 18 thousand feet arena is located generally slightly toward the south and east and rotated it does a number of things by rotating the shape in the arena
4:05 pm
we opened up a closet space on the southeast corner for entrance it yields a more comfortable and adequate area on the site for the northern northwestern podium and locating a smaller podium on the south west corner we maintained the center of the site off third street working around the site i'll point out some heights that's a key part of the project the two office towers are will not exceed the height limit of one hundred and 60 feet that's the d requirement, of course, the podiums max out at 90 feats event center the arena is much lower than that it tops one hundred and 35 feet we've done a lot of things around the height
4:06 pm
of the building to make the massing and the scale for massing and not to create tall walls i'll walk you through the dimensions we have the hall or the market it is a food eccentric development we look forward to programming that right now, we're thinking it is a community-based food amenity that helps with the park on saturday morning you might be able to go and get breakfast and have a picnic in the park and then spinning around the upper areas of the are corners we're calling the mission bay area isn't it so an elevated element of the project that leans out over the city and the bridge and also on a lower level down into the arena as a club for arena
4:07 pm
guests most importantly to are the spaces between the building the largest one is the main placing and on 3rd street the north west plaza and goes to the southeast plaza i've mentioned before those pauthsd look like this just talking about the way you can circulate around the building without having to go into them let's talk about bike access for a second we're intending and targeting to exceed the minimum remit for bikes we want this to be healthy and environmental friendly place to go to and we're certainly welcoming more bike parking transit access one of the things we're digested excited about is the convenience to get to it in
4:08 pm

francisco and spent $9.2 million every day here in san francisco this support many jobs and contributed $560 million to the general fund we know that we are leaving money on the table due to a number of factors one of which the commission support we are addressing and take the opportunity with the moscone project we entered into with a public-private participating now we hear from our major clients there is a tremendous need for space in san francisco one that can host political conferences and one day efforts associated with hotels this addresses it and makes it assessable for our venue users in terms of
4:20 pm
transportation accessibility that provides bikers and pedestrians with ease pathway to the building and it's proximity to a- it makes it easy for public transit we see a number of venues that don't work thankfully month are in other cities but effective assess wants is important for a safe experience the design being offered provides the access points we need this and for those reasons we continue to support the facility and we know that will help to attract the visitors by help make our public-private partnering in moscone more valuable. >> as the next speaker comes up i'll call one more name. >> thank you, commissioners i'm dennis with the diamond

4:22 pm
lives this classroom could be an incredible incentive inspiration not only for the warriors and basketball games but multi media and journalism and advertising business even the architecture teams that do those incredible structures and plus as a long time promoter of education in city hall for 35 years it's critical to introduce our kids to the public-private sector relationships this body board of supervisors the mayor's office, all those agencies are revolved in this process to me that is all what i refer to as an educational methodology those sports teams in and of itself

4:26 pm
arena when more people were speaking against it than this room could possibly hold i don't want to dwell on the past i'm impressed from the prospective that the setting which occurs has questions but you've well answered i'm happy to say the accumulation of buildings we're dealing with the citing in the way i do and am glad we're finding a way to redefine micro e mission bay the hospital basically of the main mission bay being an institutional viable off accomodation we're having something that can potentially create a new center and focus within a similar looking building the arena about evolve and find it's proper facade and other lemons i thing
4:27 pm
i'm interested a new office building where the larger hope they've distinguish wvm the architecture of the other buildings there's an element of sameness he hope you'll reach that making it - i'm happy about the continuation of the waterfront i'm sure the port will be supportive the mandate of the bay trail and the city's idea of connecting the buildings and have fisherman's wharf all the quasi you're starting to do here speaks to that idea and at the end you'll have to stand to get the same applaud the sales force and the letterhead i look
4:28 pm
forward to seeing this project. >> commissioner antonini. >> i too am very impressed by the plan it is truly an urban facility like many in the past you have a arena surround by a sea of parking and the arena maybe the park in the middle the gathering spates even more than the arena that will be used often but the park and the plans for the food hall and the office buildings and, of course, all the remain use that is in the area will make it a vibrant area all year long and this is very giving to me unfortunately in 1966 san francisco began to lose not only professional basketball but another concerts and thing in the past including we have
4:29 pm
two political conferences in 66 and other championships only because it was the only possible facility in the bay area it wasn't because of the stent of it once the arena of the colosseum was established in the oovldz we are eclipsed by another sites the whole bay area losses if we don't have the most concentration of jobs during the day's and people want to come for other reasons since is they're here that's why facilities are successful as witnessed by at&t park because people want to be in the city they work in the city and it's great to have sporting events and concerts and having all the
4:30 pm
parking underground is a great step and having the retail sites that will help support the projects but financially to make that even better than you know it could have been otherwise that's very good idea and we have a lot of transit that's been pointed out one thing we have to look at it and consider with the environmental piece to have a plan of what we will do for people that drive from the east bay we'll courage people to take transit but which way to have the traffic flow i have less concerns about the south because it is easily address is from the south so for the city at large so i just have a couple of questions
